Universe: 50 Ideas You Really Need to Know - Joanne Baker I've just sort of paged through this and read bits and pieces. It's very similar to those "dictionary of terms" books one finds about various subjects.

Being thus, it doesn't go into all that much detail about anything, of course, but i suppose it is a reasonably serviceable introduction to the subject, as are most of these '50 ideas' books.
